A Gravity Hammer is a crude, but brutal melee weapon used by Brute Chieftains. When used, it hits all within 5ft of the target of the attack, with the exception of the user. However, if the strike is a critical hit, the extra damage is not applied to the area of effect damage. The Gravity Hammer has a limited charge - striking a blow uses 8% of of its original charge. The Hammer can be used as a large improvised melee weapon, using no charge. At his option, the GM can give all Energy Swords and Gravity Hammers unlimited charge- this allows them to become iconic weapons for the player characters. Otherwise, a Gravity Hammer cannot be reloaded or recharged.
At the wielder's option, the gravity hammer may be treated as an archaic weapon rather than an exotic weapon for prerequisite and ability purposes.
